You shouldn’t settle when it comes to performance, and with the Golf, you won’t have to. With the understanding that you want a nice mix of power and efficiency, Volkswagen equipped the 2018 Golf with a standard 1.8L turbocharged engine. It’s the best of both worlds because although you’re charged up with 170 horsepower and 199 lb-ft of torque, there’s no fuel being lost thanks to an EPA-estimated 25 city/34 hwy mpg. The Golf also comes in the GTI and R models as well, giving you a supercharged boost in power with 210 and 292 horsepower, respectively.
In addition to the performance outlined in the 2018 Golf, it also comes with some exceptional safety features. Earning an NHTSA overall safety rating of five stars will have you and your passengers experiencing the mental security that comes from standard and available safety. Features such as Forward Collision Warning, Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control, and more come available in the 2018 Golf.
